I disable personal search.
I deny them access to my location.
I try to prevent them from showing me maps set to my location.
Yet I still get served with a local map, and idiotic business results for my search term (which has no locality to it, [sunlight] for example])... and the normal results return a few local businesses in the top 25 that have never been in the top 500 before for this very broad search term.
It's absolutely ridiculous.
